Latest Library News: Library Director Retiring, Hogwarts Academy, British Tea Party

The following is a release from the Burlington Public Library: 


Library Director

As many of you know, Lori Hodgson, Library Director will be retiring in September after 15 years of service in this position.  The Trustees have interviewed candidates and have chosen her successor. We would like to congratulate Michael Wick, who has been hired to fill this vacancy. Many of you know Mike since he has been the Assistant Director for the past year. He has been very visible in the library covering desks, introducing and setting up adult programs, leading book groups and book talks and attending Friends meetings and events.

Mike has worked closely with Lori over the past year which will ensure a smooth transition.  We are sure that the same high quality of service that the community has come to expect from the library will continue under Mike’s leadership.
